NFL has another game to end Week 15. Two other teams made playoffs, with the Bills and Seahawks beating their tickets. The Steelers can close the week Monday Night Football By snatching AFC North, the Bengals win.
Meanwhile, we are back for another round of NFL strength ratings. Instead of rating teams from 1 to 32, we’ve divided them into levels. They are ranked in their category by record, but teams with the same record are not intentionally placed at each other’s account. It’s just putting together teams with similar teams in terms of where they stand.
Kansas City Chiefs (13-1)
Drew Bryce was slow to come out of the gate on his return from a rib injury, but the road win against the Saints is still really impressive. They are the presidents and everyone in the NFL.
Top level – not the presidents edition
Buffalo Bills (11-3)
Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2)
Green Bay Packers (11-3)
New Orleans Saints (10-4)
Buffalo and Green Bay took care of the business on Saturday, and while New Orleans lost to Kansas City, it’s not something we can exactly fault them for considering how well the bosses are doing. The most important thing for New Orleans was to reclaim Drew Press and begin preparing him for the playoffs.
Go to the official playoffs
Seattle Seahawks (10-4)
Teams at the level below will make it to the playoffs, but they still have a little bit of work left. Seattle is in and is now in the driver’s seat to snatch NFC West.
Go to playoffs at all probability levels
Cleveland Browns (10-4)
Tennessee Titans (10-4)
Indianapolis Colts (10-4)
Tampa Bay Pirates (9-5)
This is a group of seemingly good teams to go into the qualifiers. It can go very well, so we’re not going to be capping their ass yet.
Spend a week in the corner thinking about what they did
Ramez Los Angeles (9-5)
You lose to Rams, and you get your own degree of Irony for a week.
Only one of these two advances – the AFC version
Ravens Baltimore (9-5)
Miami Dolphins (9-5)
This used to be part of the parity layer, but it’s something a little different now. Crows and dolphins both come hard at the right time, but it looks like only one of the two will earn the last wild card dock.
Only one of these two gets ahead – the NFC version
Arizona Cardinals (8-6)
Chicago Bears (7-7)
This isn’t quite the same as the Ravens and the Dolphins, but they’ll likely claim to be the last wild card deck. It’s not as remotely interesting as the Ravens-Dolphins duel of the last two weeks.
NFC Eastern class
Washington Soccer Team (6-8)
The Dallas Cowboys (5-9)
New York Giants (5-9)
Philadelphia Eagles (4-9-1)
We’re ensuring there’s no winning record for NFC East champions, but we’re now waiting to see where they end up. There is a moderate 6–10 chance of getting the job done, but if Washington can beat Carolina or Philadelphia, they’ll go to the playoffs.
Playing the chord level
Raiders of Las Vegas (7-7)
Minnesota Viking (6-8)
We’ve seen turnover in this group with eliminations in matches knocking out some, and 15th week losses move these two. Both are still athletically alive, but down two matches with two games left he won’t cut.
It was eliminated mathematically
At least they have QB from the future subclass
Los Angeles Chargers (5-9)
Houston Texas (4-10)
Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1)
These three won’t be participating in the qualifiers and have a lot of issues to deal with, but they head to 2021 at least thinking they have an answer in the most important position on the field.
I’m not sure what to do with these two
Denver Broncos (5-9)
Detroit Lions (5-9)
Detroit has a strong midfielder in Matthew Stafford and Denver has a midfielder in Drew Lock who they hope will be their advantage. I take both of them a step up in the big set of questions below, but I’m not quite sure what to do in their future.
Face the big questions
Atlanta Falcons (4-10)
Carolina Panthers (4-10)
New England Patriots (6-8)
San Francisco 49 (5-9)
Atlanta has a midfielder now, but has a lot to count for for the future. Teddy Bridgewater is something to work with, but it doesn’t seem like a man to adopt in the long term. The Patriots have to figure out what the center is and what they are in the post-Tom Brady era. And while the 49ers have Jimmy Garoppolo, they have roughly 40 free agents to sort this out of season. There will be a big turnover.
Trevor Lawrence Subclass
New York Jets (1-13)
Jacksonville Jaguars (1-13)
Well, I didn’t expect this. Planes actually won a game, entered Los Angeles and defeated the Rams. Jaguars are now in the driver’s seat for Pick # 1, and this one can sting Jets fans for a while.
